Does your living room seem to be a bit lacking? Need a bit of sprucing up? Why not try a square coffee table as they are the perfect furniture choice for any living room.

The trick to matching the correct one to your room is to choose a square coffee table that is two-thirds the length of your sofa, you're living room will then look balanced.

Coffee tables sizes:

In terms of which height should you go for, then you need to look at what it will be used for most first; will it be an extension to your dining room table and used for eating? Or will you put your feet on it? If it's the latter then go for a square coffee table that is slightly lower than your settee, if it's for eating then you need the height to be slightly higher than your settee.

When it comes to choosing the right size square coffee table, the question you should be asking yourself is 'Should I go with a large or small square coffee table?' - that's the debatable question but it all comes down to have much space you have in your living room or snug. You must choose carefully however when it comes to choosing the correct size; too big and your settee will look out of place, too small and your table will look pointless.
